Need a certain 120mm

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey guys im looking for a 120mm fan w/ blue led that will work by being directly connected to just the mobo...no molex or anything. it is to be used as an intake. a fan controller would be a plus. And the connecting wire to the mobo must be decently long. i would get another ThermalTake A2018 but its cord does not reach from the front of my case to the mobo...
and from newegg since they gave me credit back for my defective fan ty

You could purchase or make a fan extension.

Making one is easy if you are mechanically inclined, and you could probably find all the parts you need in your parts box/drawer/warehouse.

well thats the thing....originally i had my a2018 in the front with the extension it came with, which was coupled with a molex.....if i just plugged it into the mobo without the molex....it wouldnt work @ all...if i plugged both the molex and the extension into the mobo...it would run at a slow ass speed and i dont know why......then i tried putting it as my outtake directly and it works just fine now..

It ran at a slow ass speed due to the fan not being needed. The fans RPMs will change if you plug it into your motherboard. When it is needed, the RPMs will go up and visa-versa.

even if i only used the fan controller it would operate slow...lowest setting would turn it off..highest would be slower than stock

btw my a2018 is getting power for the mobo and the fan controller is connected to it and it works just fine (unless i use the extension coupled with the molex)....
